having a beard or mustache helps one to be distinctively different. I wonder who has that in clubsnap... I think i know. haha.
Here's an easy way, at least in our Portraits sub forum.
Photographer: Puts thought before pressing the shutter release, puts thought in identifying results with technical and artistic merit, and eventually posts his/her painstakingly chosen shots.
GWC: Let's just say we're just thankful he didn't dump the entire content of his CF card.
i am GWC ^^
So not all who takes up photography starts as GWC.A GWC stands for “Guy With a Camera.” Simply put, the GWC is a guy who spends a lot of money on a professional camera and somehow thinks he now qualifies to shoot with models. In the majority of cases, the GWC has no experience or practical training and simply wants to entice young and naïve aspiring models into taking pictures that are normally for private use and involve nudity or semi-nudity.
goat is too far to kiss la.
just look at the number of pp views...we know got more gwc/xmm viewers than other viewers.
guess...when you are still young and ur gf is xmm...u dun find the need to shoot other xmm...just shoot ur own xmm...haha i still prefer shooting landscape...dun need to ask model pose, hear model complain (which happens when ur model is ur friend), carry bags, etc etc..
er, i hope this isn't some sort of veiled commentary about my shots;
i don't deliberately plan sessions for shooting; most of what you see are taken on holiday, or candid shots.
and i think there should be a clear definition about what a xmm is.
a xmm produces shots like this:
i use anime so that no one will come and tell me, what if that girl is my mother or my sister
a xmm also tends to care about monetary benefits.
there is really, nothing wrong with shooting anyone's gf, i think. i mean, if it's a genuine two-sided relationship, not all those "you buy me lv bag then i dump you after i get it" relatinoships.
after all, we like to record the things we love, right? i like rocks, i like cats, i like the koala. i don't think you can quite force yourself to shoot something you have absolutely no feeling for - it shows in the shots.
